New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader SK Bagga has registered victory from Krishna Nagar Vidhan Sabha seat of Delhi. The counting of votes for Krishna Nagar Assembly seat in Delhi began at 8 AM.
The Vidhan Sabha seat had witnessed a tough contest between the candidates of the Aam Aadmi Party, Bharatiya Janata Party and the Indian National Congress (INC).
